New Trailer For Disney’s Maleficent Drops

maleficent 2

The new trailer for Disney’s Maleficent, the live action spin on their 1959 animated take on Sleeping Beauty, has hit, and it doesn’t look half bad.

We can blame Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth movies for the trend of upping the action and epic scope of old fairy tales when it comes to putting them up on the silver screen (Burton’s largely terrible Alice In Wonderland, the markedly less terrible Snow White And The Huntsman) but at least there was already a dragon in Sleeping Beauty, so the big battles and lavish effects don’t look as out of place.  Plus, it looks like they’re playing around with the normal stereotypes of dark = evil. Could this be Disney’s Nightbreed? We’ll find out when it hits Aussie cinemas on May 29.

Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg and stars Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Sharlto Copley.
